JBKnowledge Develops SmartReality Application to Visualize Construction Projects in True 3D Augmented Reality

 

LONG BEACH, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 28, 2014 — Epson America today announced that JBKnowledge, Inc. a technology consultant and solutions provider to the construction, insurance and risk management industries, has joined its Moverio Developer Program to bring an immersive augmented reality viewing experience of its SmartReality application to the Moverio™ BT-200 smart glasses.

SmartReality is JBKnowledge’s latest application developed for commercial builders that combines 2D plans and 3D project models for an enhanced, mobile visualization of construction projects. Utilizing the full Android operating system on the Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses, SmartReality allows builders, developers, project owners and others to simply look at 2D plain paper construction plans through the smart glasses and view 3D interactive Building Information Modeling (BIM) files of the structure, offering an unobstructed, real-world perspective of projects for planning, design and construction management.

“We are excited to join the Epson Moverio developer community as we bring our app to builders, contractors, and developers in construction markets around the world,” said James Benham, president of JBKnowledge. “The Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses are a perfect complement to our SmartReality app in the office and for construction uses in the field.”

“We are pleased to support JBKnowledge in their mission to simplify document and work flow management for the construction industry,” said Eric Mizufuka, product manager, New Ventures for Epson America, and Moverio developer program lead. “JBKnowledge is an exciting Moverio developer creating innovative, real-world use-cases in the enterprise space.”

Leveraging Epson’s patented core technologies, the Moverio BT-200 offers an unparalleled binocular smart glasses experience optimized for augmented reality applications. Micro projectors located on each side of the eyeglasses project transparent overlays of digital content directly in the user’s field of view over the real-world environment. In addition to the Moverio BT-200’s sensors for head-motion tracking and hands-free navigation, the smart glasses include a front-facing camera for video as well as image capture that detects real-world markers for augmented reality (AR) applications.

The Epson Moverio BT-200 smart glasses are available through select online retailers and direct from Epson for MSRP $699.99. For more information regarding the Moverio Developer Program, please visit the dedicated site here.
